Nanny of the Year Awards

Reason TV presents its 2013 Nanny of the Year Awards, recognizing those who devote their lives to telling us how to run ours. Ted Balaker, who wrote and produced this spoof ceremony, features Oregon State Rep. Mitch Greenlick, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Eastchester, N.Y., supervisor Anthony Colavita and, last but not least, the drop-dead gorgeous Halle Berry.

Bloomberg: Nanny King

As star Tim Duncan enters yet another NBA finals, he aims to do what New York City Michael Bloomberg has just done: Earn the ultimate recognition in his field one more time before the end of a storied career.  Bloomberg has cemented his legendary status by securing yet another Nanny of the Month award from Reason TV, making him the only three-time “winner” in history. (The mayor also took home a Nanny of the Year award in 2009.)

New York’s New Nanny

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been dubbed a nanny in chief because of his many bans, edicts and crusades aimed at controlling what people can eat, drink and smoke. Now New York Mayoral hopeful and City Council speaker Christine Quinn is trying to one-up Bloomberg by proposing a new law that would raise the age that young adults can legally buy cigarettes from 18 to 21.Reason TV visited the campus of New York University (NYU) to ask student smokers what they think of her proposal.

 

Bronx Cheer for Bloomberg

Now that Hugo Chavez has croaked, is there a bigger boob left on the planet than New York’s Nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg? He envisions himself as a benevolent do-gooder, but his meddlesome over-regulation of everything under the sun showcases his true character as the ultimate control freak. New Yorkers should give him the Bronx cheer, but they better be careful how loudly they protest or else he’ll fine them for exceeding healthy decibel limits.

I Am Not A…Dictator

This just in. In response to questions about the sequester, President Obama reiterated that he is not a dictator.  “The remark was carried on the official government news channel NBC,” says Jodi Miller. She also touches on America’s obese pets, New York’s Nanny Mayor Bloomberg and Europe’s horse meat scandal in this edition of NewsBusted.

Nanny Bloomberg Strikes Again

New Yorkers have a reputation for being fiercely independent. Strange they should elect a mayor who might be the biggest nanny and paternalistic boob on the planet. Having already gone after cigarettes, trans-fat, baby’s formula and soft drinks, now New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg wants to ban Styrofoam cups. Perhaps it’s a good thing Hostess went bankrupt, or else you could bet before his term was up, Bloomberg would be leading a crusade against Ding Dongs and Twinkies.

Bloomberg Gun’s A-Blazin’

Diane Feinstein (circa 1995), Mayor Bloomberg and Sam Donaldson self-righteously denounce guns. Also, did you know that porn allegedly hurts short-term memory? Find out Stephen Green’s response to this interesting tidbit, plus all the other wacky internet items, on this Week in Blogs episode. H/T PJTV

Blaming Bush Redux

This just in…President Obama has won re-election. “So let four more years of blaming President Bush begin,” says Jodi Miller. She also addresses New York’s bluenosed Mayor Mike Bloomberg and the Democrats’ favorite dead voter, Osama bin Laden, in this edition of NewsBusted.

More Boobery from Bloomberg

New York’s Nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg can’t resist playing the role of “Father Knows Best.” Under his rule, New York leads the nation in imposing bans and limits on fast foods, cigarettes and sodas. Now, Bloomberg is also waging a paternalistic war to badger women into breastfeeding their children. Kennedy from Reason TV checks in with Susan Burger, a certified lactation consultant, on the mayor’s latest broad-stroke initiative.

Bloomberg Nips Baby Formula

Many men are into breasts, but New York’s Nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg has carried his fascination with breast milk to an illogical extreme — so much so that he’s now not only upset civil libertarians, but also earned the scorn of the liberal women on The View, and even been subjected to ridicule on RT, the global Russian TV network. When even the Russians are pouncing on Bloomberg’s penchant for “regulation rather than promoting policy through education,” you’d think His Highness might see the arrogance of his ways. But after waging war on cigarettes, sodas, trans-fat and now baby formula, somehow it won’t be surprising if he refuses to back off his pious pedestal.
